i made a flow chart. kinda.
so yeah, i've been thinking my creativity is directly linked to my uterus. peeps of the female persuasion, do you find this to be true? during the ovulatory phase, i'm literally going full blast. that's right about now. been sewing up a storm against kenny's will. stand back, citizens. my body has decided if it's not making babies, it's sure as hell making clothing. oh, i have so much to show you! to wit: one skirt! two tops! THREE DRESSES! all patiently waiting for the move and a sunny backyard!
it's rocking in kalkatroona. but i know the end of the luteal phase is coming, when hormones give the order to commence preparations for le Time Of The Month. during those days, i'll pick up fabrics and match them with patterns, disgusted at my pairings, or try to drape something that quickly becomes a miserable mess, or hell, maybe just attempt a tracing, but none of these suddenly rocky paths will lead to mecca. my brain comes back when the cycle begins again. i guess it's really about three days out of the month where i'm sunk (and this is not my actual period, it's the time just before it; my period ROCKS, y'all, i want to shout it from the rooftops).
luckily, during this particular post ovulatory meltdown i'll be on a plane and then unpacking, so no botched projects for me this month.
what about you? does yo pre-flow slow yo roll?
